Georgia State University (GSU) is one of the most diverse universities in the nation: racially, ethnically, culturally, and economically. This year, U.S. News and World Report ranked GSU 2nd in the nation for the most innovative universities and 2nd in the nation for undergraduate education and teaching. GSU leads the country in eliminating disparities in graduation rates based on race or ethnicity, conferring more degrees to African American students than any other non-profit college in the nation.

Greatest MINDS, a nonprofit and student organization, launched a new campaign "WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE MY DEGREE" Campaign on Georgia State University's campus. We, as a graduate and undergraduate students at GSU partner with staff members, students, faculty and an alumni by connecting first generation college students to college, career and community networks. This initiative utilizes multimedia, conferences, workshops, public forums, and peer mentoring to help students develop new networks to navigate the college experience.

Greatest MINDS partners with and is composed of Georgia State University staff, students, faculty, alumni and community members. Our mission is to provide mentorship and guidance to citizens and first-generation college students seeking to become active and successful contributors to civil society by giving them access to college, career and community networks. We achieve this by promoting intergenerational dialogue through developing programs, forums, initiatives, campaigns and conferences which highlight the issues of race, socio-economic class, and gender identity in urban cities and on college campuses.
